25T Assembly line for wheel loaders
One objective when considering reconstruction and investment in assembly lines is to shorten the production time of each vehicle and to increase the production capacity by including more assembly stations and allowing individual assembly times. Ergonomics and working conditions also have to be considered.
When investing in the transport system, Solving’s flexible solution provided a simple workshop layout allowing changes to be carried out at a later date, if required, at a minimal cost. Other important factors were simplicity and comfort, i.e. high reliability and precise controllability.
The use of reliable standard components in the air bearing transporter resulted in minimal maintenance and easy accessibility of component parts. The advantages of air film technology are:
• no floor damage or wear
• better working conditions
• low running costs resulting in a higher quality end product
